Student Representatives


The School of Computer Science places great importance on building and maintaining excellent relationships between students and staff.

Our elected Student Representatives play a major role in helping to achieve this, and we are very grateful for your time and support.

This page gives you information which we think you will find useful. If there are other resources which you think should appear and don't, please contact one of your Student Rep Staff Co-ordinators based in the School's Student Support Office (SSO)
